VI642 V.I.P.™ Series Economy Stainless Steel Lobby Panels

The Alpha Communications® VI642 V.I.P.™ series Stainless Steel (Vandal-Resistant) lobby panels are rugged, good-looking panels for indoor or outdoor use, and are our lowest cost Stainless Steel panels, made in stock configurations, for 1 to 12 push buttons. 

Made of heavy 16 gauge high-carbon stainless steel, the VI642 series is made to take abuse. VI642 panels are made in 'stock' sizes, and are available in flush or surface mount styles. Flush VI642 panels are made completely flat and include a galvanized steel flush back box, and surface VI642 panels are made with 1.50" (39mm) side return bends and are open in the back, and include a 'C' type galvanized steel wall mounting bracket. 

All VI642 panels feature solid metal push-buttons and engraved apt. markings (right onto the face of the panel). The use of 'Star' head screws makes it nearly impossible to tamper with the panel without the use of the special screwdriver tool.

All VI642 surface panels are a compact 4.25" wide (108mm) and all VI642 flush panels are a compact 5.00" wide (127mm) and both are available in 1,2,3,4,6,8,10 or 12 button versions. Panels with 2 or more buttons are engraved 1-x inclusive (x=number of buttons on the panel). Because of the low-cost 'stock' nature of these panels, they are not available in custom sizes or configurations, with custom engraving, building name/address engraving or alphabetical directories. For custom configurations or special Stainless Steel panel requirements, we suggest our VI402 (custom) V.I.P.™ series panels.
